Exciting Addition to the Winery, Join us for Harvest

New Italian Botti Installed At The Winery In Time For Harvest
Our new arrivals are finally here. We are starting to move away from smaller oak barrels to the more traditional large casks called "botti" in Italian. Each of these giant botti are the equivalent of eleven of the standard barrels and hold about 275 cases. Unlike the standard barrels which have a life of five years, these botti can last well over twenty. We are slowing making this transition as the quality of our grapes continues to evolve and get more complex and we don't want to mask it in strong oak. We have three now and expect to add another four next year and more thereafter. We are incredibly excited to move forward by going back into history.
